Any idea what these specifically are, they came from a big box store in orland with the label of cactus, ;)
Brasilopuntia? Consolea (they all have at least two names each). It's certainly an Opuntia and from South America.
I like how the flower buds form on this particular Optunia, what a nice find!
I think the common name is "Road kill" or Consolea rubescens
